My research interests are in examining organizational leadership skills, such as managing workplace stress and conflict resolution, as well as the assessment and treatment of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder and other development disabilities. My current research is focused on examining factors that lead to and can increase collaboration between service providers. I also have research interests related to the utilization of Organizational Behavior Management to improve systems and performance in the workplace.
